Idina Menzel and Nia Long star in this remake of the 1988 classic starring Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey.

Wannabe singer CC Bloom (Menzel) and privileged lawyer's daughter Hillary Britney (Long) meet by chance as kids and strike up an unlikely friendship which endures, against all odds, throughout their lives.

It's not quite the tearjerker you might remember (there's a chance to refresh your memory when the original airs on Sky Cinema Drama & Romance on Tuesday at 11.15am), but you do get to hear Idina sing Wind Beneath My Wings.
